Total Scam
Anonymous Borrower

Tried to charge $2400 for a small bicycle hitch that was added. No issue paying for removal, but $2200 claiming the frame was drilled is a SCAM. It is illegal to drill the frame of a modern car, and they are so hard it's almost impossible. It was 4 bolts through existing holes!!! They won't listen or budge. Faxed the instructions for the hitch. No VW ever again!

Had early termination on dieselgate. One payment left on lease turned in car and 120 days later credit report hit for 85 points saying i was late on a payment for a car i no longer owned. Attempts to call and rectify pointless as the left hand doesnt know what the right hand is doing...waiting weeks now for a resolution. Zero communication. Never using these ****ing idiots again.

They said they never received a payment from my husband & I two years ago, which they took from our bank. I have had Chase Bank fax them proof of payment & i've faxed over copies of bank statements. Now the lease is up they are trying to make us pay it again & charge us over $700 in late fees & they keep reporting late payments to my husbands credit report. I have called non stop to have this rectified; each time being put on long Holds & being told that someone will call me back, which never happens. Then they said they never received it & had a check no which they apparently sent us back? Which makes no sense? Why would you send someone a check if you never received payment? I said they can see that "supposed" check wasn't cashed or received & to cancel it & send another one in that case..... put on hold again. Nothing they can do to help. Poor customer service! So now my lawyer is handling it. Never ever will I, on any of my family or friends get a Volkswagen again (this was my 4th VW). They lost loyal customers & unfortunately I lost hours of time on the phone which I will never get back!

They are absolutely horrible
Anonymous Borrower

I have a loan for lease through them and recently applied to have loan taken over by a friend (with a co-signer). We only used a co-signer because they charge $100 to even CHECK YOUR CREDIT and no one can even answer me on why.  It was supposed to take 3-5 business days to find out the result. We are on week 5 and after multiple phone calls to them every week where we were told "oh it's on the fax machine" this week they told me it was DECLINED and they can not tell me why. They again said that a letter was mailed a week ago... stil no letter in the mail. I could go into much more detail but they are horrible as far as customer service. According to my VW dealership they don't even know why VW credit would lead me to believe egos was possible or take my $100 which is not refundable and wouldn't go towards us applying again.

We finished a diesel buyback on 3-29-17 which resulted in an overpayment on our VW CREDIT account of almost 1700.00 it is now 4-17-17 and they have not reimbursed the overpayment difference even though they had been taking EFTpayments from our account monthly. Now they're saying that the reimbursement may take as long as another 6 weeks. Customer service is TERRIBLE. I will never use VW credit again!

The worst
Anonymous Borrower

This is my third VW lease, it was great and something went bad this go round. The department is sluggish, you are frequently billed for the previous month which is paid and assessed a late fee despite not being late. They leave automated messages to say call customer service, takes about a half an hour to get a hold of any one and the answer is often, "the account is fine, sorry you were called" but you have to take them seriously because they will screw up your payment and then threaten to send it to collection agency despite everything being in order. Why not just login online? They have something wrong, I haven't been able to access my account despite multiple calls, browsers, computers, locations ect for more than three years. I love the cars but will not be getting another because of the screwed up be credit.

They sent me the wrong title
Anonymous Borrower

I finally paid off my car after 5 long years. I have had trouble with VW Credit before, but this tops the cake. They sent me the wrong title. A title for someone elses VW car they just paid off is now sitting on my desk, while mine is God knows where. Of all the incompitent things to do, this has to be the strangest. They might as well have sent me someone elses car by mistake.

Leasing bad cars
Anonymous Borrower

I leased a VW CC from this awful company which had a seroious airbag recall that could cause death or serious injury. When I erquested to get out of the lease they refuesed since there was no fix for the recall. They still keep reporting negativly that has caused me a lot of inconvinience. Worst company ever, stay away from them and their cars. They are liars and scam artists.
